Question about 2003 Kia Spectra

1 Answer

2000 KIA Spectra/Shuma 1.5 Auto Transmission not changing gear. Hi, My auto transmission just started giving problem 2 days ago. First time I notice the problem is when moving off from stop in "D", the gear seems to be on 2nd gear so it's hard to take off. If I then manually shift to 1st gear, then the power is there. While driving the gear also seem to be stuck on 3rd gear; not shifting to 4th. But these does not occur all the time. Sometime it ok. I notice this. If the gear is giving problem, the light on the dashbox to indicate which gear position it is in does not light up ie "D". But if the gear is working normal then the "D" is lighted. What is the problem. Please help.Thanks.

It is the prnd indicator switch on the shift shaft of the transmission,or a shift solenoid,or the valves are sticking in the valve body,try some lube guard,added to the transmission,it is great for stuck valves.

the fluid is drained by removing the transmission pan located under the car. make sure you buy a transmission filter kit so you can change the filter and gasket. the trans fluid is added to the dipstick tube, where you have located the dipstick.

00' Kia Spectra. Change auto transmission fluid


You would need to take the pan off to access the "filter" but you would be ok just to do an oil change. Unless there is a problem auto boxes are very clean inside.

2000 Kia Spectra check engine light came on now will stay in 2nd gear (auto transmission)unless it is put into first, bumped to 2nd, then to Drive.


the check light has a sensor fitted in the engine, this inhibits the gear-box for a reason, there must be a problem somewhere, thats why the light is on, it trips the sensor to stop over use of the gear-box and engine,until the problem is rectified, so as to reduce the chance of damage...
